Makedonsko Devojce

By Brackleforth on March 13, 2016 6:26 am

7/8 and 3/4 time, Major and Hungarian Major scales.
This is my cover of a famous Macedonian folk song called Makedonsko Devojče. The original creator is Jonče Hristovski (1931-2000). The song is now available in the Creative Commons http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/

The melody in 7/8 is from the original; everything else is my addition. Thanks!

GULASHTIC! ahahaha oh my what the hell did I just make up x_X but it is what it is, a deliciously spicy mix of different ambiences, time signatures and instruments! wink The progression is really interesting and I love how the instruments/percussions go from sounding almost live to completely sampled and synthesized, and then back.

Nice beat on this one and I like the crazy way the melody progresses.  It gets kind of intense for a bit towards the end there!

very good musical composition in the middle of the song!

This is a rich meal indeed; a lot to ponder and digest.

Now I'll check out the original ::)

Wow! hahaha nice track!

I'm use to writing music in standard times and this it's pretty amazing!

Keep it up each week with your tunes man!

that's a spicy metaphor! yeah, I used megadrive percussion and nes/snes/gba samples for my additions, letting the original melody use 32/64-bit instruments. Glad it sounds alright

Thanks! The progression switches to Hungarian Major for my section, transposes up a fourth, then goes back to the original, switches to Hungarian Major two semitones up mixed with the original, then up a fourth again.
